Dog Road Trip Checklist

Pre-Trip Prep

Get your pup accustomed to car rides. Start short, positive drives to build comfort.

Health Check

Visit the vet for a checkup before the trip. Ensure vaccinations and medications are up-to-date.

ID & Microchip

Update your dog's ID tag with current contact information. Ensure the microchip details are accurate.

Packing Essentials

Pack food, water, bowls, leash, waste bags, and a first aid kit for your dog.

Rest Stops

Plan frequent breaks for potty breaks and stretches. Research pet-friendly rest areas along the route.

Safety Measures

Use a secured crate or seatbelt harness. Never let your dog ride with their head out the window

Comfort Zone

Bring familiar bedding and toys to create a cozy space for your dog in the car.
